Downsville, New York Map

Great campgrounds, not as busy as others, which is perfect if you want a getaway with the family. There is a bit of through traffic between campsites and the pond, which is the only reason I give it a 4/5. It’s well maintained and if you absolutely HAVE to leave the grounds for emergency supplies etc., it’s not too far away. I highly recommend this site.

There is a larger trail not shown on this map. See attached photo. Launt Pond is great for kids kayaking.

Definitely more for horseback riding or snowmobiling. Trails were mostly grass. Just a tick-fest hiking it.

Yes I know what you think, but my kids love it.

Great place to ride your horse. You can canter them for miles. Literally!! Without stopping. It’s great!

This place is in the middle of nowhere..right where I like to be. Nothing but heavy woods, endless hiking, trout steams, and an occasional pipe you'll see coming straight out the side of the mountain with cold, clean water running out of it where you can drink straight from the pipe. I happened to have camped there on a Fourth of July one year where we came from our campsite down into the little town of Downsville, and experienced something just like in the movie Doc Hollywood.
